We tend to eat somewhat vegetarian so we decided to try this restaurant out since it had great reviews. It was a small restaurant and looked a bit like a cozy diner. Atmosphere was nice with candles on the tables. Our waitress was very knowledgeable but don't expect a bunch of choices. There were about 3-4 appetizers, a few salads... More

Every time I am in Asheville I always make a stop at Plant part of my trip. Their menu is creative and ever-changing. My only caveat is to be careful pulling in and out of the restaurant (they are located on a very busy street). I would not be surprised if they don't expand and re-locate before long, given their...

It was so nice to eat a delicious veggie dish that wasn't either pizza or a veggie burger. Open one up in Boston!

Had reservations yet waited 45 minutes past that time to be seated. Place is so crowded and tables so close together, you can barely move your chair. We waited another 20 minutes to be waited on to be told the item my partner wanted was out. The hostess seemed disinterested so we asked questions about other items so we decided... More

If you eat Vegan and are in Asheville, please find Plant and eat there. The menu is endless so I ordered several things and left with box to go. If we did not get stuck in traffic the next day we would have returned for a second round of great food.

My husband's Raw Lasagne was very good and the appetizers as well. I ordered a Mexican dish that was a little heavy.

Thanks to my wife, we had learned about this restaurant, and were lucky enough to get a reservation last Friday (Oct 21st). From start to finish, we had a wonderful night. I must admit, I was a little uncertain, since I am neither a vegan or a vegetarian, but the flavors presented with the starter plates ( BBQ Okra and... More

We like to try vegetarian restaurants when we travel. This is one of the best I have tried. The menu is not huge. Try the Korean tofu dish; it had a little of everything in the bowl and was wonderful. My wife had the Uttapam which was cooked vegetables rolled up in something like a pancake. The chefs here can...

This restaurant is amazing. My husband is a vegetarian, I am not. We were both completed satisfied, if not blown away by the quality of the vegan food they serve here. The variety is great.
